Subject: A Good Primer for Resisting Soft Interrogation
I thought this was a pretty good film and a good example of how even "soft" interrogation can gather puzzle pieces. However, it completely avoided the vastly more persuasive "hard" interrogation. The enemy won't stop just because one resists the "country club" approach. Torture is inevitable, even with the Geneva Convention.
In this instance, there wasn't enough time to get the necessary information from the prisoners using torture, so the "soft" approach was illustrated to show that it still matters in some cases.
Subject: Great for its type
I did enjoy this bit of history.
Being a mid 40's military indoctrination film, it tends to be corny. It was entertaining in its way.
I shall now be on my guard. In the unfortunate event that I am captured by Osama Ben or the Taliban, I will remember never to have cocktails with them, nor will I ever let them fool me into playing pool with them. I will not give military secrets to enemy nurses. Not even the pretty ones.
I do give the play 5 stars.
